Lahore Qalandars’ COO says Shaheen is completely fit to play in PSL and is bowling for the national team these days in complete rhythm

Lahore Qalandars, a PSL team, will play for the championship in the eighth iteration of the competition, which will start on February 13, 2023.

In an interview with Geo News, Lahore Qalandars’ Chief Operating Officer (COO), Sameen Rana, expressed optimism for the team’s chances of taking home the championship under pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s leadership.

The great pacer is rhythmically bowling for the national squad these days and is fully healthy to compete in PSL 8, according to Rana.

During the World T20 final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Shaheen sustained an injury (MCG). The T20 world cup marked his comeback to international cricket following a knee injury he sustained during a two-match Test series against Sri Lanka.

Lahore Qalandars, according to the COO, are not under pressure because they are a champion and have endured difficult times in the past. “As winners, we’ll make an effort to keep the championship. To become the first team to successfully defend the PSL championship, “Added he.

Rana expressed satisfaction with the team’s composition when speaking about the group. He claimed that he made the best team possible by maintaining balance. Our strength is bowling, and our batters are elite, according to Rana.

He stated that Mohammad Hafeez and Sikandar Raza had taken the place of Mohammad Hafeez and right-handed English batsman Samit Patel, respectively.

Rana stated that Najam Sethi, the chairman of the newly formed Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) governing committee, will lead the PSL to greater success.

He continued, “Najam Sethi started the PSL in trying times, and the PSL needs an administrator like him.

‘Eager to make a comeback’

Shaheen had previously stated that he was planning to make a comeback in the PSL the following month as his recovery was nearing completion.

“Compared to how I felt at the World Cup, I feel considerably better. I’m bowling in perfect rhythm and am ready to return soon, “He had spoken.

The teenage fast bowler will be captaining Lahore Qalandars and pursuing a title defence in the PSL’s eighth season.

“We are a very strong team, and I have no doubt that we will outperform our previous performance. I am really pleased with the team since we have made up for last year’s shortcomings and I think the Qalandars are stronger this season “said the cricketer.

The PSL is Pakistan’s greatest brand, and the fast bowler added, “I am looking forward to making my full comeback during that event.”
